to understand that many of the tabloid practices seen in britain in the print press have begun to appear in the united states in our broadcast and cable media. we are hardly perfect on this side of the pond. >> what do you think is drawing that? also the 24/7 news cycle, the desire to have something new and something more. that pushes a lot of journalism outlets into minutia. they go after more detail and more information. you saw that in the united states in the case of a congressman anthony wiener. once that got going, there was such a drive to get every single photo, every single phone message possible. i think you see that in general. once media outlets have access to the most private information, they often keep looking for something more to put up on the screen. in britain, perhaps, in print. >> good to have your insight into the media industry. thank you for joining me from wisconsin. let's look at some of the other stories making headlines. a collision between a train and a bus in northern india has killed at least 38 people near the town of patiyali. the bus was carrying about 7
